The 29th May to the 1st June, saw the 2nd round of the NEH-ODH funded Linked Ancient World Data Institute (see http://wiki.digitalclassicist.org/Linked_Ancient_World_Data_Institute); this year held at Drew University, New Jersey. The really vibrant twitter channel has been captured here: http://hawksey.info/tagsexplorer/arc.html?key=t43pxutORob7ofgdztwWAEA (you'll see that things go awry after 5pm as we went to the pub!) I've done some dirty visualisations using the scripting language R of this medium and they are attached below and a few publications will be forthcoming.

A short update on how we prepared for launching our British Museum/ UCL crowd-sourcing project in April. 
Since late 2013, the MicroPasts team has been preparing the British Museum's (BM) Bronze Age Index to be the first offering on our crowd-sourcing platform. This corpus consists of around 30000 (roughly A4 sized) cards (holding information going back to as early as 1913).
